Karonga United vows to make Karonga Stadium fortress


Karonga United Head Coach, Christopher Nyambose, has warned teams that will be visiting their home ground of Karonga Stadium next season to tighten up, as there will be no easy points.

The TNM Super League returnees, who regrouped for pre-season training last week, were 0-1 losers to Nyasa Big Bullets in a friendly match played at the stadium on Saturday.

Kondwani ‘Scholes’ Kumwenda scored the only goal of the game.


But Nyambose downplayed the defeat, saying the future looks bright for his side.

He added that the match was a test of character for his players as he works towards formulating a solid starting XI ahead of the 2018 season.

“From what happened in the friendly match against Bullets, we need to work on coordination between our midfield and the defence. The striking force comprises of both new and old faces and they are yet to gel.


“But we will turn this stadium into a fortress.

Visiting teams will struggle to get points here. I believe that, if we utilise homeground advantage, it will be easy for us to remain in the league beyond one season,” Nyambose said.

On his part, Bullets Assistant Coach, Eliah Kananji, was delighted with the win, but said his charges have to work extra hard to challenge for honours in the new season.

“We have our weaknesses as a team and we are working on them. There is time for us to assemble a strong squad between now and the kickoff of the new season,” Kananji said.

This was Bullets’ third friendly match ahead of the 2018 season, following a defeat to bitter rivals Be Forward Wanderers and a win against Masters Security last week as the two teams were preparing for their Confederation of African Football club competition assignments.
